Join us on 9 November for ICVA’s and PHAP’s sixth and last online session in the learning stream on humanitarian coordination. The event will focus on how NGOs engage and interact with government-led coordination mechanisms, and on the role of NGOs in the Refugee Coordination Model.
Understanding these two topics has become crucial for humanitarian work. The increasing capacity of many governments to lead humanitarian coordination efforts, coupled with the growing critique of relying on an internationally-led approach to humanitarian coordination, means that NGOs are engaging even more with governments to provide humanitarian assistance. Moreover, in the light of the refugee crises that we are currently witnessing around the world, another coordination model has become increasingly important for humanitarian practitioners and NGO staff: the Refugee Coordination Model (RCM).
